I had forgotten my username and passwrod that i used when i installed xampp for the control panel. how can i retrieve this information. i really don't want to un-install and re-install xampp back in, unless there's another way i can access the information i need.

Can you explain your problem more detailed?
(The Control Panel don't have a password.)

Assuming you installed to the default location, delete C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\.htaccess file.
Also you can delete C:\xampp\security\xampp.user (or it may be named .htpasswd) file and C:\xampp\security\htdocs\.htaccess file.

Now test if you can get to the XAMPP Welcome Page at http://localhost/ without the getting the login prompt.

If you require to set a new password again then from the XAMPP Welcome Page follow the link to Security - you can also change the password in the Security link if you have not forgotten it. ;)
